Inside Steamworks – The Old Vine

I’m continuing this series of shorter walkthrough posts for Poptropica Steamworks Island. After reading through the comments on my Poptropica Cheats for Steamworks Island Post and on the Youtube video, a lot of people are saying that they’re having problems finding the old vine in Steamworks. You’ll need the old vine to defeat the plant monster hiding in the sewers beneath the hatch. And of course you’ll need to defeat him to get down to the elevator engine so that you can power it back up.

Finding the old vine is very easy and it’s one of the first things you can do on this quest. You’ll find it in Gear Alley, which is the zone just to the left of the Main Street area where you start. Run left past the Living Quarters building until you see a green steam vent right above street level. Jump up on this to ride it to the roof of this building.

Poptropica Steamworks Island Old Vine Step 1

You're going to ride this steam vent to get to the roof.

Once you land on the roof, there’s the old vine sitting on top of it just waiting for you to pick it up and place it in your backpack.

Poptropica Steamworks Old Vine Step 2

The old vine is up here on the roof.

Once you’ve found Sprocket the robot and obtained the Robot Crab, you’ll enter the hatch and descend into the sewers below. Here’s where you’ll use the old vine to grab the steam pipe and defeat the plant monster blocking your path.

Using the Old Vine in Steamworks Island

Eat steam, Plant Monster!

  1. First to comment! In your face! (J/k)

  2. 3rd to Comment. 1st is worst. 2nd is a loser. 3rd is the best. Hey look I’m 3rd.

  3. I see why Smart Paw dumped……*cough*

  4. Nick: What did you say?

  5. Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

  6. That is what I thought.

  7. Anyway. I’m thinking about dying my hair dark brown (it is red now). What do you think?

  8. Dani the Magnificent

    I frankly don’t give a rats ash about your hair. Get off of my brothers name now!

  9. *mocking Smart Paw* Ooh, 1st to comment is worst 2nd comment is a loser 3rd comment makes you brag yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak blah blah blah blah blah

  10. Why isn’t it miss smarty paw’s sister. Howdy to you. You annoying little pest.
    Give this message to you brother. You are an idiot for leaving me.

  11. Dani the Magnificent

    I now I am going to upset him. But I’m getting my brother!

  12. I was kidding Cuddly. If you knew me well you would know that. But no matter. I have a score to settle.

  13. Dani the Magnificent

    What the hell! Oh crap. Excuse my language. Rachel what is your psycho problem?

  14. Dani! Not nice! You apologize! We do not use bad language on here!

  15. Dani the Magnificent

    I’m sorry, Besides hell really isn’t a bad word. But I shouldn’t have used it. I’m sorry. And this is Smart Paw. The real one.

  16. Nicholas, no. Tell that to Miss Rachel over there.

  17. Dani the Magnificent

    Well hell is a bad word. But. Yeah. I’m sorry.

  18. Whatever. I’m leaving!

  19. And hell is a bad word. That should not be used.

  20. And do you all realize that the person who makes this website reads our comments. She probably hates us!

  21. I am not one of these savages on here with no class. Hmph!

  22. What the snaps. Someone just impersonated me. I never would say that.

  23. Whatever. Most likely Rachel.Whatever Rachel. You have no class.

  24. Dani the Magnificent

    Cool. I can do it to! (Don’t ask. And Rachel didn’t impersonate you Nicholas.)

  25. I know. We all choose our own subjects when we should be commenting on the topic. I’ll start. I think that this was very creative to help Poptropica fans with islands.

  26. True. I said for us to do that one time. But nooooooooooooooooooooo. no one listens. Anyway. I finished steamworks Island with little cheats. Actually the cheats didn’t help. I basically did the island by myself.

  27. No one listens to a lady. Nicholas said that. I said she hates us. The person who makes this website is working her butt of. But as soon as Cuddly or smart Paw says something it is brilliant.

  28. Actually. Finding the vine was easy for me. Hey Steamworks island is really close to Astro-Knights.

  29. And Cuddly you need to be more respectful to ladies. Because you act like a serious cad.

  30. Dani the Magnificent


  31. How do I act like a Serious Cad?

  32. Look it up.
